- Thank You Received: Friday, August 3rd I had the privilege of representing ORLC in one small way and one large way. The small way was serving my normal first Friday of the month as a volunteer at the Downtown Cooperative Church Ministries (DCCM) Food Pantry. The large way was the opportunity to deliver the ORLC donated non-perishable food and personal hygiene items, collected during the month of July, to DCCM. The look of amazement on Keya Stewart's (Executive Director,DCCM) face and the gratitude in her voice, as I brought in the many boxes and bags of items, said it all.
- Thanks to the 75th Anniversary Committee for designating DCCM as ORLC's community outreach partner for the month of July. Thanks to the LAMBS for "packaging" the items in an easy deliverable fashion. Thanks to all the volunteers from ORLC who give of their time, talent, and treasure to serve at DCCM in this critical community need ministry. And, thanks to all the members of ORLC who donated to this DCCM food drive. Those in the community feed through the efforts of DCCM, and ORLC as a partner Church, say THANKS! -- Ken Wingeier
